    Hey folks I’m heading to Arizona from Canada. I would like to stay at blm s. What am I looking at for issues?? Thank you so much
  7. Air to air are the hoses are the hoses that go on to the pipes that go to the rad the (air to air intercooler) in front of the rad to the intake. Mine have narrow rings on them. If you get a hole in one or blow one off you have no boost. Over the years of trucking I have gone threw at least three in my career. And clamps are heavy duty with a 7/16 nut. Hope this explains this lol I’m tired and not really think n lol
  8. Lmao only one sow lol three or four now with the size of the loads now! Yes it will be a good trip looking forward to it!! Thank you
  9. Lol I did call AMA about my KW since it is personal motorhome they said ya no!! Lol kinda figured!! Ya hopefully no chaining up but see what happens right!! I got them if I do need them. I tricked for years in heavy haul and that was and still is the worst part of the job!! I d rather cage a brake or repair a air line at sub zero temps!! Lol
  10. That’s a good idea have to grab one of those thank you!!
  11. Lol its like me!! I heavy hauled in northern Canada for years with my own trucks. I was only stranded once!! Sat phone was handy that day!! But I carried everything!! I had lots of tool boxes on my winch trucks. On my w900l only have my sleeper box’s for now but ya once you have that bug ya hard to shake!!lol I have a gas powered air compressor it will fit in my toy hauler, just not sure yet!! I have the little guys on my shoulders arguing lol!!
  12. The only thing I saw was a spare air to air hose and clamps. I have always carried one of those and a Leveling valve. But that is a great list!! Thank you!!
  13. Thank you!! I ll have to get one of those!!
  14. Thanks Vern!! Yes I have a set of triples and a set of singles. As much as I despise them I have the hanging on the truck. I’m from Alberta Canada and you don’t go any where with out them. Actually I had to throw a set on to move the truck in my yard the other day lmao!!
  15. Thanks Nevereasy!! I got my multimeter test light truck has a amp gauge so should be good there!! Lol but ya never know right ?? Lol
  16. Thank chief I will definitely throw in some oil and a few jugs of antifreeze. I will have about six jugs of water too in the trailer for my coffee!! My air bags are in good shape too but I do have my good old vice grips to isolate a bag if I have too!! But I ll have to put that on my to get list !!
  17. Thank Dollytrolley I will have to look at a yoga mat lol!! But I will take your advice and be careful lol! Thank you!!
  18. Thank you Vern I almost forgot about my charger!! Lol I us ATF for priming my fuel filter I always carry a couple bottles. I do have a good tire plug kit that I have had in 4 other trucks but have never used it lol!!
  19. Thanks Rich!! Ya I’m running outta a room already lol!!
  20. Lol that’s awesome!! Ya no my days dealing with truck tires are way done. Plus my body doesn’t like when I do that kinda stuff anymore!! Lol
  21. Thanks Jenamdjon. I’m gonna put a air line on today. I wasn’t sure if it would run a impact. I have always had them on my other trucks but have never tried a impact. I do have a bottle jack to but only for the trailer tires. If it’s the truck the tire shop can handle that lol. What torque reducer do you use?? I never thought about having on of those either!! Lol.
  22. Hey folks getting ready to head for Arizona in a couple weeks!! Maiden voyage for the kenworth. Been a lot of prep as I’m new to the hdt pulling my trailer. What do you guys and ladies carry for spare parts and tools?? I have my normal kit rubber and plastic airline, fittings, belts, have a spare alternator ,(came with the truck), fuel filters,chunk of rad hose and heater hose. Tools I have my normal kit all 3 size socket sets etc. Anything I’m missing??
  23. That sounds great!! I too had a ticketed welder install my hitch. I can do it but I was just worried about the what if’s right. Hat would be awesome to keep the ends open to store stuff!! My curt was pre welded so SOL there for me!! Lol
  24. I did weld mine but I don’t see any reason you couldn’t bolt it to the frame. There web site is very good!! This hitch I have is good for 1500lbs tongue weight and 15000lbs gross trailer weight capacity with a 2 inch receiver.
